Configuring Host Attachments

This procedure lets you view, print, or change the configuration settings of an installed attachment.

Note:
The printer can have multiple sets of configuration data: one for each mode in which the printer can operate. To update a configuration for a particular mode, the printer must be running in that mode (for example, Duplex mode).

The following host attachments are available:

Before you change a configuration value, please review the configuration information table for the attachment configuration you are changing:

  1. Before you print the attachment configuration, ensure that all attachments are disabled. See Enabling and Disabling Attachments for more information. You do not need to disable attachments if you are viewing or changing the configuration.
  2. To access the configuration settings, do one of the following:
  3. SELECT the Configure Attachments procedure. You see the Configure Attachments window. This window lists the attachments that are currently installed. It also lists the attachments that are not installed but are present in the control unit and could be installed.

  4. To view configuration information for an attachment, do the following:
    1. SELECT an attachment type from the list.
    2. SELECT the View... push-button. You see the View Configuration window.
  5. To print a copy of the configuration information for an attachment, do the following:
    1. SELECT an attachment type from the list.
    2. SELECT the View... or Configure... push-button.
    3. On the resulting window, SELECT the Print... push-button. You see the Print Configuration window.
    4. To change the number of copies you print, do the following:
      1. SELECT the How Many? field.
      2. Type the number of copies you want to print.
      3. SELECT the OK push-button.
    5. SELECT the Print push-button on the Print Configuration window.
      Important

      The configuration data is always printed in U.S. English.

  6. To change configuration information for an attachment, do the following:
    1. SELECT an attachment type.
    2. SELECT the Configure... push-button. You see a list of configuration items for the attachment.
    3. To change an item:
      1. SELECT it from the list. You see either a pop-up window or a keypad window.
      2. SELECT the value you want from the pop-up window, or enter data on the keypad window. Then SELECT the OK push-button.

        Repeat this step for as many items as you want to change.

    4. When you have made all the changes, SELECT the OK push-button. You see the Configure Attachments window. If you want to change configuration information for other attachments, repeat the previous steps as necessary.
    5. When you have made all attachment changes, SELECT the OK push-button on the Configure Attachments window. You see the Restart prompting window.
    6. If you have other configuration changes to make, you can make them before you restart the system. If your configuration changes are complete, SELECT the Restart push-button to make them effective.
    Note

    SELECTING Restart does the following:

    • If you are making this change in duplex or simplex mode, a window appears that informs you that an automatic Shutdown procedure has started. This window is followed by a window stating that the system is being rebooted (AFCCU microcode is being reloaded). At the completion of the microcode reload, the attachment changes are in effect. You do not have to power off the system and then power it on.
    • If you are making this change in dual simplex mode, the Display/Touch Screen screen goes blank while an internal Shutdown procedure is executed on the printer on which you are working. The system then displays a message that indicates that the other printer must be shutdown for the changes to take affect. This message is followed by the Display/Touch Screen window for the other printer.

      You must select the Shutdown/Restart procedure from the Operate pull-down menu on that Display/Touch Screen window, and then execute the Shutdown routine. A window appears stating that the system is being "rebooted". At the completion of the reboot, the attachment changes are in effect with no system power-off and power-on procedure required.
